This was the first restaurant recommended by our local Roman friends, but we needed 3 days to make a reservation....so plan ahead. Seems tucked away from the beaten path, but the restaurant is alive with energy and courteous service. We had the veal, carbonara and the pollo ala romana....all very satisfying. Thankfully, they have an in house sommelier that will... More

Cacio e pepe was excellent, but the pasta with shrimp and calamari was even better. The branzino with shrimp and calamari was splendid. The tiramisu was spectacular. Ambience was fine and the service (Cesare) was excellent. Outstanding experience. Will certainly go back next time in Rome.

We wanted to sample the famous Cacio e Pepe and saw that Il Felice was reckoned to be amongst the best - and it happened to be near our hotel. The food was fabulous - cacio e pepe, ravioli and saltimbocca. Our waiter was charming and helpful but our dining experience was spoiled by the sommelier who was reluctant to... More

what a horrible restaurant. Rude, mean and everything is extremely salty! What nerve they have to serve my husband lamb full of fat for 20 euro.

Classic neighborhood restaurant serving classic Roman dishes. Parmigiana (not on the menu, just ask for it) good, but very heavy. Cacio Pepe exceptionally good, the best we had in Rome. Pasta Felice (tomato sauce with herbs and ricotta) good, but a little oily. Overall very good food, but with limited time in Rome it may not be worht the special... More

Inst'easy to find a free table, but in this restaurant you can eat the best typical Roman food. Pasta cacio e pepe, polpetta di bollito (meat balls),and abbacchio arrosto (lamb) are at the top. Very good list of wines. Prices reasonable. Dont'miss it.

The restaurant is one of the last placesat least in Testaccio, where to eat the traditional roman food, cooked as the tradition wants. I will recommend "trippa" on Saturday. Each day of the week the menu reservers special dishes cooked just that day, as you can see on the website. Pasta cacio e pepe is a must. Large selection of... More

An authentic Italian restaurant. Our Italian friends took us there to dinner. They insisted that we booked well in advance (2 months before our visit) and they were right. This place is packed and there is a reason for it. Variety of different tastes, amazing hand made pasta (try the cacio e pepe), meat, salads and selected antipasti. Last but... More

Great food and mozzarella to die for. We also enjoyed the artichoke and seared fish. We found the seafood pasta a bit salty but the rest of the food including the dessert was excellent. They also had a great selection of wines.

One needs to book well in advance, the tables are full months in advance. Excellent Roman food - pasta, swordfish, artichokes - the whole lot was well cooked, well presented and tasty. The meatballs were a bit heavy and the sauces filling so one is in danger of ordering way too much. A great meal, but expensive at 175 Euros... More

Staying in Testaccio

Neighbourhood Profile
Testaccio
Put the house music on replay and you have Testaccio, an ancient Roman port and former working class neighbourhood where the bass is set to high almost every night of the week. Its collection of discoteche (nightclubs), street parties, and crowded restaurants give it its well-deserved party reputation. During the daytime, Testaccio is more easy listening than club hit, the area is full of locally owned small businesses and has one of the city's larger produce markets.
